Introduction

The new AMD Richland processors were released just over a week ago. AMD first launched its A-series processors just over 2 years ago as the Fusion technology with the “Llano” series. During its first launch and introduction to this APU series chip, no one was really sure how well this platform was going to perform. Over the course of a few years, we have seen AMD improve on its one of a kind platform with its first revision “Trinity” and we now have the next release “Richland.” During its first revision, Trinity, we saw a change in socket from FM1 to FM2 along with a revision to its chipset. However, with Richland, we are glad to see that AMD decided to stick to its FM2 based socket. Today, we have the AMD A10-6700 processor at hand to put to the test.

To put this new AMD A10-6700 to the test, we also have a chance to introduce to you the MSI FM2-A85XMA-E35 microATX motherboard. The motherboard sports the A85X chipset but in a small form factor. While the FM2-A85XMA-E35 isn’t a top shelf motherboard, it has all the features we need for this test.

 

Let’s dive in and take a closer looks at both products here and put this to the test.
